Breaking Down Monoliths

It might seem like Datadog is a young pup born into Kubernetes and microservices, but that isn’t true. Like many other organizations, we started with larger code bases and VMs, but scaling the company to several hundred engineers while building a system that can handle trillions of data points every day required a shift in how we work and the tools we use. In this session, I’ll share tips for how to break apart your monoliths and large code bases into faster, loosely coupled services. I’ll also give you advice for managing your services and how to troubleshoot issues in a microservice environment. And more importantly, I’ll share strategies for getting buy-in and alignment across your organization.
